#China, #Beijing. Perceiving the world’s injustices and its harshness, capturing it first in the midst of the urgency of key moments of history, and witnessing through photography – this has been my role, my very inspiration for several decades. Perceiving the world has also meant, over the course of the years, taking the time to see its soft, rounded edges, smiles and the enthusiasm of humanity, the poetry of a landscape or the vibrant colors of a street scene. These signs of life also enrich the sometimes bitter visual memories of conflict. My fifteen-year-old son and I were at the heart of this initiatory journey from Peking to Paris. In Peking, I sometimes rediscovered my solitary breath as a photographer as I set out in the evenings to capture the heartbeats of the city.

Turkmenistan, Ashgabat While I was on assignment for National Geographic on the Caspian Sea, I managed to obtain, with a great deal of trouble, an authorization to photograph the stud farms where the famed Akhal Teke horses of Turkmenistan are jealously guarded. A traditional spectacle was in preparation. I wanted to capture the sense of freedom of the animal, the rapport of friendship and understanding between man and beast, and the purity and grace of these horses. #animal #horse #man #stallion #running #turkmen #caspiansea #traditional #friendship #grace #whitehorse #hat #turkmenistan #ashgabad #akhalteke #bluesky #turkmenhat #whitehat #horseboy #purity #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza#rezaphoto #rezadeghati#rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist​ ​#webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس​ ​@thephotosociety

#Nicaragua, Datani El Diablo nature reserve, Jinotega, La Bastilla. At La Bastilla, a student employee of the nursery sorts of coffee leaves. The NGO Teach a Man to Fish supports educational projects in favor of underprivileged young people in Nicaragua, Paraguay, Kenya, Uganda and Bolivia. Founded in 2006 by Nik Kafka, the organization has three goals: education (through scientific and agricultural training), entrepreneurship (by promoting self-employment projects) and poverty reduction (by training a new generation of skilled workers from marginalized communities). #woman #worker #coffeeworker #farm #farmlabor #labor #hardwork #coffee #green #leaves #hand #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #webistan #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

Joy. #Morocco, #Casablanca. In the course of working on innovative educational initiatives throughout the world for the book Learning a Living, I discovered a Moroccan NGO, Al Jisr, whose name means “bridge” in Arabic. Since 1990, they have been working on modernizing the Moroccan educational system by encouraging companies to sponsor schools through financial and technical contributions. I had arrived that morning in the city of Casablanca, and I spent the day visiting the center at Al Jisr. I came upon this child as the dying light of the day had already enveloped the city. His joy showed me the positive force of a generation working to train their youth to enable them to be the players of tomorrow. #child #colors #balon #child #candidchildhood #childhood #boy #mosque #mosquehassan2 #contrast #light #shadow ##maroc #running #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza#rezaphoto #rezadeghati#rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist​ ​#webistan #رضادقتى#عكاس​ ​@thephotosociety

#Vision #Brazil, #SaoPaulo. While on assignment for a long term photographic project through the world on different educational initiatives, I met this boy, a mischievous Lumiar student who mimicked a photographer and his camera. In Brazil, Lumiar schools offer a new kind of educational methods, similar to the Montessori approach, splitting traditional teaching in two separate roles: the mentor and the master. Knowledge and skills are transmitted in a new way thanks to innovative school place ergonomics, tailor-made projects and the students’ involvement in the thinking and decision-making about their own learning. #education #child #boy #hand #portrait #looking #student #school #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #webistan #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

The passenger Crossing of the Mediterranean sea. I was on a long terme assignment in Algeria since several months. The idea was to publish a book on this incredible country and unknow country. I spent few months there through different seasons. I wanted to get the feeling of crossing the mediterranean sea like so many Algerian, living in France and traveling back home for summer. My son Delazad and I took the boat in Marseille in France to Algiers in Algeria and spent a night, enjoying the slow-down of time. #Marseille, #France #Mediterranean #crossing #francealgeria #travel #algerian #french #yellow #woman #passenger #pink #blue #grphic #sea #exile #world #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan #رضادقتى #عكاس @thephotosociety

Witnessing the private sorrow #Afghanistan The noise of war invades my mind. If I force myself to blot out all visual memories, if I compel myself to concentrate and listen to nothing but the sounds of war, then, like a blind man, I am submerged in an entirely different experience. The sounds buried in my memory are numerous: the rustling steps of combatants advancing quickly, the menacing drone of airplanes preparing to release their bombs, ear-shattering bombardments, rocket launchers, machine guns reloaded before a burst of gunfire, the bullets whizzing by, announcing that death is near, the heavy crunching sound of a slow, sad exodus through the snow And the voices, the voices of war? They tear into your soul, leaving behind countless scars. In the darkness of night, they recount the suffering of those we’ve met and whose stories we’ve heard: the cries of a hungry baby; the terse orders of a doctor trying to stave off death in his field hospital, the silence of a child who has witnessed the horrors of war, the desperate prayer of a woman who has lost everything… I will never forgot that night in Dasht-e-Ghala it wasn’t loud. It was a murmur. A moan evoking both the sorrowful plea and the soothing lullaby of a mother for her little one pierced the silent shadows. In their humble home, the little sister was witnessing the heartbreaking scene. The mother sat at the side of her son, holding him in her arms, gently caressing him. Her only son, wounded in battle, had just breathed his last. He was only twenty years old. A few hours still lay ahead of them before their inevitable separation. All night long, she continued her plaintive monologue for him, just for him.

The Memory of Laughter #Kabul, #Afghanistan. In the bazar of the city, I first heard cries of joy. I searched among the stalls, among the men strolling peacefully, the women dressed in blue burqas moving swiftly among the cries of the vendors. Then I saw them: they glowed with happiness and life. Seated on a motorbike in the street, which had been transformed into an improvised playground, I saw them shaking with laughter. I captured their joyous intimacy and the memory of their spontaneous laughter still echoes inside me. Happiness, like sorrow, can be found everywhere, in each country at peace or at war, in each fragile society torn by adversity. It is the very force of life. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

Apartheid Abolition Face to Face South Africa Through my 40 years comitment to witness the world, I have been confronted with situations of extreme distress. For example, a black mine worker in South Africa during Apartheid, treated like a slave, who came forth and encouraged an entire population to stand up and demand their rights. I am the witness who passes in the night and I want to tell the world of the struggles I encounter. But despite all the time I have spent with them, despite the interest I have in their struggles and their situation, despite the slow, deliberate gestures with which I try to handle my camera, I still read doubt in their eyes from time to time. This heightens my sadness, which mingles with the beauty and strength in these faces. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

On the heights of Mount Altai, to celebrate his son’s circumcision, the family patriarch has slit the throat of a sheep and the children of the tribe are cooking it. Kazakhs, Uighurs and Tajiks have left their marks on this area, now annexed by the Chinese, with their culture, traditions and their languages, both Turkic and Persian.

International Day Against Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking Drugs or the Torture of Body and Soul #Karachi, #Pakistan Drugs and its counterpart, addiction, is a form of internal torture. While I was on assignment in Pakistan for National Geographic, I spent several days in an unlikely part of Karachi, the worst slums of the city, far from the living, where mere survivors deferred death as they mutilated their bodies and souls even more with each sniff or shot of heroin.

International Widows’ Day #Volta Region, #Ghana Dignity. I was traveling around the world putting together the book Learning a Living about innovative educational initiatives. In Ghana, I witnessed a response to a societal problem that victimized widows. Their status as widows deprived them of fundamental rights, so Mama Zimbi, a radio star with a charitable foundation, launched the Widows Alliance Network to mobilize these women by creating a community of solidarity where they follow professional training workshops in the fields of health, agriculture, sewing, apiculture, to name a few. These workshops are the key to work and independence... in short, dignity. Text by Rachel Deghati.

Summer time Mediterranean Sea I crossed the Mediterranean between Algiers and Marseille, a journey that marked the end of a reportage in Algeria that had lasted several months and would culminate in a book written by Yasmina Khadra on this country that is so rich and appealing yet so little known. There were few passengers on board. The usual bustle on deck during this type of crossing had given way to peaceful tender scenes between lovers, friends, and a few families, along with a few solitary souls all of whom seemed caught up in the immensity of the sea and sky. A breath, an air from elsewhere... the call of a certain lightness, the slowing of a hectic pace. The call of silence making itself heard through the brouhaha of the world, providing the space for a moment of introspection. Text written by Rachel Deghati.

World Refugee Day #France The SOS Group celebrated its twenty-fifth anniversary of major initiatives in tandem with a variety of associations that cure the ills of our society. My mission was to photograph the beneficiaries of these actions. I met with Mansour, Selina and their children, who had found asylum and a place to rebuild their lives in France. Here is their story. They were forced to flee Bangladesh. Once they had arrived in France, they lived in a center for asylum seekers, a place where people from over twenty different countries lived together. All of them lived in the hope that the validity of their request for asylum would be recognized... “Selina, my wife, worked for an NGO specializing in women’s rights, access to contraception and microcredit. Her association was “disturbed” by religious extremists. They refused their access to a village and a member of the NGO was violently attacked. Then I was called to the mosque where they told me that my wife and her colleagues were condemned to be stoned to death. A few days later, they burned our house down. My niece died in the fire. Pressure increased and, to ensure the survival of our family, we had to leave. Once we arrived in France, we were lodged in a center for asylum seekers. The Office Français de Protection des Réfugiés et Apatrides helped us put a dossier together. All this takes a long time. We remained at the center for over four years. Our children were enrolled in school and learned French. We became friends with people from Armenia, Azerbaijan, Chechnya, the Ivory Coast, Iraq... Each one of them carries the suffering they endured in their country. But the conditions at the center were such that we all begin to rebuild and recover. This summer, we got our papers. What a relief! Today, a new life begins for us.” Published in "Personne n'est au bout de son histoire - Le Groupe SOS vu par Reza" . #refugee #refugeeday #WorldRefugeeDay #Bangladesh #refugeestories #picoftheday #igers #photooftheday #photojournalism #reza #rezaphoto #rezadeghati #rezaphotography #rezaphotojournalist #webistan ##عكاس #رضادقتى @thephotosociety

FATHER'S DAY #Xinjiang #China For this special day of celebration of Fathers around the world, I wanted to share with you this picture of father and son on yack in the Province of Xinjiang in China (#easternTurkistan) and a poem written by Khalil Gibran in his book the Prophet Your children are not your children. They are the sons and daughters of Life's longing for itself. They come through you but not from you, And though they are with you yet they belong not to you. You may give them your love but not your thoughts, For they have their own thoughts. You may house their bodies but not their souls, For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams. You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you. For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
